Mental health care has been a hot-button issue in recent months. There’s been talk of increasing access to help, but local mental health groups fear a proposed Health and Human Services spending bill could lead to cuts.

A rally took place Thursday at the Minnesota State Capitol, and protesters say the bill could result in $150 million fewer dollars for Health and Human Services. Finance Chair Senator Richard Cohen says the breakdown isn’t clear, but mental health programs could be hit.
